What do people think of 85 vs. P85 and then for P85 did you go plus?
I went for the S85. I don't need the extra performance, and heartily dislike 21" tires.
P85 here. One test drive and I had to have it. If I had to do it over again, I'd probably make the same decision, but the standard 85 still has plenty of power. I had a P85+ loaner and liked the handling improvements, but the car wasn't any faster than mine and the Michelin tires were louder (surprising because those Pilot Sports are top-notch). What was really shocking to me was the price of the loaded P85+ loaner --- a few bucks shy of $120,000. I could barely justify mine at $20K less than that.
I spent a long time weighing the decision between the two. For my budget it came down to a loaded 85 or a more modestly equipped P85. Like the previous poster, I couldn't justify the P85+; it looks like it's only $6500 more but in fact with all the required options it jumps to $20K pretty quick.
In the end I chose the P85. I've been driving performance cars for years, and though the 85 is no slouch, I wanted my Tesla to be the quickest car I've owned so far. Although with that logic, my next car is going to have to be a rocket sled or something :)
Have an S85 on order with 9 days left to confirm. Still deciding about going to the P85. The + is not on the table. Test drive next Monday in Austin and then I will decide.
We went with the S85 and added the suspension and other features...does that make it an S85+?
In the grand scheme of things, I really don't "need" to go 0-60 in under 6 seconds, and I especially don't need to do that in under 5 seconds. Also didn't like the 21" tires.
